Bernardo is a funny name, and an unused one. Does anyone know a child with that name? As I write these lines I think of the Italian film director, Bertolucci, Guimarães, the Brazilian poet, and now Bernardo will always be Mar’s parrot too.
What the heck have parrots to do with the sea? Such a strange combination! They always go hand to hand. Better, shoulder to shoulder. I read that pirates always had a parrot on their shoulder not because of the conversation, but for their ability to sense the earth nearby even when they were in the middle of the ocean ...
Bernardo is not in the ocean, but in a beautiful house in Valldoreix. But do you know what? He doesn’t need it, because he has his own Mar to himself.
